Since there's no mod for this forum, here's some not-quite-ground-rules, but something I imagine the regulars would agree upon: * Don't revivie long dead threads. This forum isn't as active as the main forum, so a dead thread here isn't from a day or two ago, but rather months ago. * Don't post with the intent of attacking Macs or looking to start some sort of PC vs Mac argument. If you really get off on that kind of thing, do it in the main forum and GTFO of here * Read what people have said in response to your question and use the search feature to search old threads in the forum. We don't need duplicate threads on the same subject or questions that have been very thoroughly answered to be bumped as if they haven't * Asking people "what should I buy, I want to try a Mac" or something like "convince me to buy a Mac" with no information beyond that (i.e. and my budget is XXX, i would primarily use my computer to do XXX, i'm interested in XXX, etc) won't get you far. Help us help you Anything I've left out?
